The principal object of the invention is the provision of a ligature or suture or absorbable animal tissue of reauisite tensile strength and absorptive properties, which will not have these properties adversely affected by heat sterilization, to devise a novel method of preparing the same.
A DISCUSSION ON SUTURE AND LIGATURE
Sutures are used by your doctor to close wounds to your skin or other tissues. There are a variety of available materials that can be used for suturing. This is because enzymes found in the tissues of your body naturally digest them. Nonabsorbable sutures will need to be removed by your doctor at a later date or in some cases left in permanently. Second, the suture material can be classified according to the actual structure of the material.
Everything You Need to Know About Surgical Sutures
Application November 9, Serial No. The term sutures as used hereinafter in the description of the invention is meant to include both sutures and ligatures. Surgical catgut sutures are composed mainly of collagen which has the property of shrinking or contracting when heated in the presence of water. A catgut suture which has undergone substantial shrinkage or contraction has markedly diminished tensile strength, is irregular in diameter, and consequently has little or no value for use in suturing or ligating. It is because of the property of collagen, of shrinking or contracting when heated in the presence of water, that heat sterilization of surgical catgut strands to be tubed with an aqueous alcohol tubing fluid, as heretofore and currently practiced, entails a complicated procedure involving the dehydration under stringently controlled conditions before the application of heat of sufficient intensity to kill all microorganisms in vegetative or spore form.

Needles, Sutures, and Instruments
For a number of years I have had it in mind to call attention to the particular method of employing silk ligatures and sutures which has been practiced in the surgical clinic of the Johns Hopkins University since the opening of the Johns Hopkins Hospital in , but have hesitated and also been eager to do so for the same reason, namely, that our school seems to be almost alone in its advocacy of the use of this material. Theodor Kocher, however, has for many years employed silk quite to the exclusion of catgut and our position is greatly strengthened by the support of such eminent authority. Surgeons, old and young, those who have been active and masterful in the marvelous period of development of antiseptic surgery, and the medical student who takes for granted the healing of wounds per primam and the achievements of modern surgery as he does. Halsted WS. Arch Surg.
Surgeons must select the optimal suture materials for tissue approximation to maximize wound healing and scar aesthetics. Thus, knowledge regarding their characteristics is crucial to minimize ischaemia, excess wound tension, and tissue injury. This article describes the selection of various suture materials available today and their intended design.
